International Authors: Writing the Not-Self

Details

Friday, August 31, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Meeting Room A

What, if any, is the writer’s responsibility toward representing the “other” accurately? What effort, in understanding, empathy, research, may be needed? Are there comparable challenges for one writing from a “marginalized” position?

The International Authors program series provides an opportunity for the community to meet and converse with writers from around the world who are the 2018 Writers in Residence at the University of Iowa International Writing Program. The series is sponsored by The UI International Writing Program and The Iowa City Public Library.
